MeTA Studio minor bug-fix release

A minor online update fixing a few bugs for MeTA Studio is available. The current version is 2.0.23042009.


PS: In the coming days I would be changing the way online updates will be done in future versions. This is because the current updates were hosted on, which seems to be closing its doors by June this year. By this time I would need a reliable solution, any help in this regard is welcome!

Never though I would blog on cooking.

Or even, never though I would ever require to blog on cooking.

Mostly because all I do is “only for me cooking”, and is highly experimental, always. ;-)

But then today I made masala dosai, and turned out to be fairly delicious, so thought some pictures are worth it.




Yummy :) … but sorry I ate all of them!

Disclaimer: The dosa batter was given by my friend’s wife, so infact all credits to her. I did make the fillings and rest of the cooking though ;)

Minor bug fix release for MeTA Studio

A minor bug fix release of MeTA Studio is available as online update. The updated version if 2.0.12042009

Apart from bug fixes there are a number of reorganizations in the graphics code as was planned earlier. These are at this point again far from complete, but as promised earlier these do not break any of the high level APIs.

Have fun!

Upgradability: The prime reason I will still buy a desktop PC

Lately, there has been a lot of talk on how the sales of netbook have overtaken that of PC shipment, though we hardly find any talk of laptop shipments at the same time.
There is one primary thing with a PC however that will always keep its sales up. I for one, will always prefer a PC for one thing it has to offer: Upgradability of each and every component that makes it up. And a PC of all the lot can be built at home by buying your own of-the-shelf components. A laptop is too restricted in its upgrade, and a netbook (what ever that means) is mostly an use-and-throw piece, not a real long term investment, it is more like a mobile phone. So, in the event of a much boasted "economic slowdown", would you be settling for a netbook as a primary computer or would buy a dependable and upgradeable PC? For me it will always be the PC as I said earlier. Of course, if you are looking out for a portable solution, I find netbook to be a better choice for me as compared to a full blown laptop, primarily because of the price, size and weight ratio.
